Hello, i have ocd, anxiety and my problem is getting worse. I overreact over every little thing, always think negative, and any little problem repeats in my head over and over again. I am never at peace anymore. I always have a new problem to think about, the thoughts last usually a few hours, til I solve them. I want a calm mind. I don't know how to control it anymore. I just want to feel normal.


Help. How do I calm my mind?

Racing thoughts was my first thing I notice before being being diagnosed but use an try use ur thoughts in the opposite way? What a mean is try use Ur rapid thinking too be productive ! A example I would be creative with expressing myself verbally too love ones who would listen! Mental illness is not the end of world n for me personally I focused on my strengths. This energy u have is a gift but ur gift most be used productively. N if u think ur thoughts are invalid ur wrong ! Look at it this way when we are born does it really matter between a girl or boy ? Either way we should be excepted and loved regardless! Ur al ready expressing urself here which shows ur confidence !

Expressing urself in anyway u see fit Is very special! Don’t feel alone if u are not understood or misinterpreted? We’re all different I’ll give u a example. Friend from work is colored an he has so much potential with his attitude an thirst for life! But he most live with people not giving him a chance like others! He also must live knowing most people are already labeling him an I even see it from other workers. Kinda sucks he has too go through but inside he knows he is special n from what I see he has potential that people Over look him n because being colored he lives with different standards then I do! So let’s trust one another n continue too give advice or atleast help the are common situations. Empathy we have is huge n seeing things from another side is priceless 😊😊
